As I write this, Indiana Black Expo officials are at the NCAA headquarters announcing key ingredients in its 40th anniversary mix.

The June 8-18 Summer Celebration will included a performance by R&B star Case, who charted with such songs as "Missing You" and "Touch Me, Tease Me". He'll share the stage for a July 16 concert with DJ Kid Capril.

Also coming to town: Dru Hill, Chubb Rock and Rob Base, and rapper DJ Kool for a July 17 concert. On the 18th, it's Teena Marie's turn, along with Keith Sweat.

On the 15th, Mike Epps--featured in such films as "Next Day Air," "Resident Evil: Extinction," and "Next Friday,"--will be picking up IBE's Entertainer of the Year Award.

Keep an eye on the IBE website for more announcements.


Your thoughts?

    As a life long music aficiando, I have to draw the line at most of what I would hear at this event. Little of what they offer has any significant outreach to musical purists with most of it caught up in how offensive an entertainer can be to people of decency.

    Hip Hop is a genre destined to fade deeply into musical oblivion and deservedly so.

    Before you make a comment about the artists performing, perhaps you should do a little research as to which genre they are in. The only one of these performers who is a hip hop artist is DJ Kool. The rest are R&B. BIG difference. I wonder if you've ever even listened to one of their songs.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
